Research projects
Our laboratory is carrying out studies on componential analysis, function analysis and health diagnosis of biological bodies using NIRS and chemometrics. Biological molecules, cells, bacteria, plants, animals relating to the term "Farm to Table", are subjects of our studies. Following projects are currently in progress:
